I think its great, too, but I wonder if the Law enforcement people that need it most will attend the training?
Its too bad there wasn't a way for there to be a small section in the initial Law Enforcement training courses for this...

But, I still think its good. There can be a balance between the safety of people and the safety of dogs.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

I think it's fantastic, but as Demo and/or I posted in another thread, there's no money for our basic safety training - firearms, unarmed self-defense, etc. We used to get firearms and self-defense practice quarterly - now we get one practice and one test. It's a joke. They're taking training and equipments away from us that I'd like to see come back before we get dog training. In the 6 1/2 years I've been with my job, only 2 of my coworkers had to shoot dogs, and both dogs had been "sicced" onto my coworkers. Yet countless number of people have required self-defense and/or pepper spray to protect themselves. So in this economy, prioritizing has to happen.

That being said, I friended LEEDS on Facebook because I think it's a great idea, just a pipe dream right now.

I think it is a good idea from the point of view as "a regular dog owner". I have always respected the police, the firefighters, and others who have these tough jobs of protecting or serving the public. I am sure there are many people who were raised the same as I was.

If one of them had to forcibly enter my house because they thought there was a situation that was putting me in danger, I actually would INCORRECTLY assume they "knew how to handle everything", including my dogs. That would mean a snarky Golden and a big ass Labradork.

Hmmm...not sure if they charge or not. Not sure how they'd fund their travel and everything, but it would be even awesomer (yep, that's a word!) if it were free!
